Are there areas in your life or work where “good” is good enough?

I struggle with letting go of my perfectionism and see the high price some of my successful clients pay to be excellent at everything. Thankfully, everything doesn’t require (or merit!) precision. In fact, I’ve learned that not only is “good” often good enough – sometimes “done” is best of all. If you’ve ever put off an important task because you didn’t have the perfect supplies, you know what I mean. Our perfectionism isn’t making us better, it’s slowing us down.

The cure for this perfection paralysis is simply taking a first action. Getting started sets you on the path to being more productive and effective.

This month, my challenge to you is to take that initial step and create an action plan or to-do list to tackle a goal you've been putting off until the perfect time. Below you'll find resources and tools to help you progress and succeed.

As always, I'd love to hear from you about how it goes. What is your "good is good enough" area? Reply to this email, and let's chat.

Create An Action Plan
When business is tough, goal setting is critical. If you don't want to get sucked into the downward spiral, you need to head for higher ground. More important, you need to know how to get there.

What peaks of productivity can you reach with an action plan?
5-Hour Rule
Many leaders (such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oprah Winfrey), despite being extremely busy, have set aside at least an hour a day (or five hours/week) over their entire career for learning activities.

How can the 5-hour rule transform your career?
